might be upgrading my htc desire next week to a samsung note. the best deal is via the three shop but they do not take in the old phone. whats the best site to trade it in for a cheque and do i remove or leave in the 4gb sd-card, i know the sim goes into the new phone to keep the same number.

not done this before

"do i remove or leave in the 4gb sd-card, "

Keep it. You'll want a card for the note anyway. and they;re always handy to have available.

You can get a lot of music onto a 4 gig card!

Not yet, but await your final update with interest!

"whats the best way to clean/format the sd-card," Most cameras I have seen, and some mobile devices have a menu item to format the card.

The general format seems to be Fat 32. Try just taking all the file off it in Windows Explorer and just popping it in. That's what I usually do.

been asking around evryone seems round here seems to use a electronic goods pawn store called "cex" it does better deals than on the net. been in there got a good price quoted more if you still have the original cardboard box,charger etc store felt really strange loads of dodgy looking young lads hanging around in there felt out of place not having a hoody and tats. But yes helful staff and a good price offered.

not sure if any of these stores in your part of scotland or not but i would think glasgow might.

hope to sort it all out week monday if three do not change the goalposts again on updating your phone early with "3".

How is the voice contol on the samsung note, the htc is poor for sending texts, surfing etc etc using voice instead of the keypad. Looking forward to it fed up, with htc all three people i recommended the phone to all now have reboot sagas.

if u haven,t already sold / traded your phone in yet,, i tried cex online (link below) http://uk.webuy.com/phones they quoted me upto £87 for the HTC Desire which is what i have and is in the middle of upgrading and wondering what to do with my old desire when my new galaxy S3 comes. Not sure yet about other trade-in / mobile recycle websites what prices they offer. As to the memory card question : most devices do give u the option to format a memory card or do it on your laptop / pc tower via windows explorer,, but i use a program called SDFormatter v3.1 from the SD website , link below. https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/ the free program on there supports all sd cards and many more and gives you plenty of formatting options. Hope that,s of some help to you. gadget321.
